Yes, You Should Be Nervous

From Art of Mind: Philosopoems to the World

*Yes, You Should Be Nervous*

If I said you
Shouldn’t be Nervous,
Well then I would be lying…
This isn’t a perfect world,
You don’t get credit for trying .
Don’t you know what’s at stake?
Companionship, love, even kids…
Some say you shouldn’t worry… Ha! Who are they trying to kid?
That Speech
That Game
That Girl — All have different consequences, And If you don’t perform well:
The withdrawal will be relentless .
So hey, man, stiffen up!
Don’t look so darn comfortable!
You might end up in a hooptie,
When you could’ve had a convertible.
